This one off special features real life testimonies and horror stories from those whose lives have changed for the worst, thanks to the areas they live in. For some, problems are caused by people, for others problems stem from changes to the local environment. But for them all, the result is the same. They're trying to survive in the Neighbourhoods From Hell!
We hear the nightmarish stories from people living in a village contaminated by toxic chemicals from a nearby industrial explosion; we meet Countess Anca and her husband Johnny who are now selling their house in a once highly desirable neighbourhood in Central London, tired of living in fear that the American Embassy situated across the road will be subjected to a terrorist attack; and residents of a Norfolk village fret that erosion will cause their coastal homes to tumble into the sea.
